Default Fortte Glove fit Case

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone received one yet? Does anyone know if it has a built in screen protector?

This is exactly the kind of case I am looking for. It looks similar to the modded Krussell that I used for my 7290.

I have one on the way for review - I'll post a reminder in here when it is up. Should be very soon. BTW, the entire screen and keyboard are covered with the plastic face, so it does have the screen protector you ask about.

This looks like the case I've been looking for, but I want one that uses the sleep/holster function. Anyone know of a case like this?

It isn't possible to have a case like this with a sleep function because the device remains in the case all the time, and does not slide in and out of a holster. If this case had a magnet it would always sleep.

Kind of like the siedo holster? If I had a glove fit, I'd just leave it on vibratea nd drop it in my pocket.

I am very curious about this and am greatly looking forward to your review. It's hard to believe that typing through plastic will be satisfactory but I will reserve judgement. I like the size and look of this case.

I had the Krusell Classic case which looks very similar to this Fortte Glove fit. Like the Glove fit, there is a clear plastic cover that encloses the screen and keyboard. After using that way for 4-5 months I decided to cut away the portion that exposed the keyboard. What a difference! I really loved the case after that. I hope the Fortte will allow me to do the same.

This case is what I was looking for a few months ago. I ended up orgin a Fortte open face case with custom screen protector. Oh well...

I didn't think of doing that to my case LOL You will LOVE the open face case for your BB (I assume that's the case you are ordering?). I ordered 1 and when I got it, I loved it so much that I decided I wanted a second case for my 7100t. I have used the first one as much as I can to get used to it. If you want a screen protector, email Monica or Salo and ask them to have one added onto the case and tell them I sent you LOL They know me quite well now.

Anyway, the screen protector I'm referring to is just a small piece of very flexible plastic that is sewn into the top of the case that covers (and sometimes sticks to) the screen. The keypad and all controls are left uncovered for easy access without removing the phone from the case. These are the features I love and that the Krusell case did not have.
